Dhom-hain

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

The Dhom-hain Enclave is one of the greater enclaves of the Idoneth Deepkin. Its name means Deep Questors. [1d]

Other Enclaves consider the Dhom-hain as barbaric or savage and note that they, fierce and proud no longer attend the assembrals that tentatively link the deepkin. Some claim that they have regressed to a more primitive state in order to survive and note that their armies are built around the bond-beasts.[1d] In turn the people of Dhom-hain consider the others to be misguided and arrogant, prone to meddle in the business of others.[1f]

Warriors of the enclave are often clad in green armour with dark clothing.[1f]

History

Age of Myth

Fleeing from the light of reason of their creator god, Teclis, the Cythai splintered into six factions and sought the deep places of the Mortal Realms. The Dhom-hain found their way to the Black Trough deep down in the Ominod Sea in the Realm of Ghur. They found the deep seas full of deadly monsters and dangerous creatures and nearly half of those who made the journey are killed in battle and devoured. Slowly their Isharann learn to shape the living coral of the depths and they build Rúndhar, the Secret City with elegant towers and citadels.[1d]

The first queen of the enclave, Gwyth Banrionic leads a large raid on the coast of the Tendril Sea attacking the Sylvaneth inhabitants but she is slain by an angry Alarielle who arrives to aid her people. [1b]

Age of Chaos

Territorial disputes between Dhom-hain colonies and those of the Ionrach enclave flare into war with battles fought in the realms of Ghur, Ghyran and Hysh. Following the war, the Dhom-hain no longer attend the assembrals. [1b]

The enclave finds that other aelf souls are far superior to most other races and seek them out wherever they can, in the process attacking a number of war covens of the Daughters of Khaine who swear vengeance on all deepkin. [1b]

A huge Bonesplitter fleet is destroyed by the combined forces of the Dhom-hain and Nautilar Enclaves, killing tens of thousands of greenskins. [1b]

Age of Sigmar

The enclave is the first to encounter Stormcast Eternals during a battle on the Coast of Horns, they form a temporary alliance – partly due to the inability of the deepkin to take their souls. [1b]

The Necroquake in the Time of Tribulations results in massive assaults on all the deepkin across the realms. [1b]

Armies

The Lasroch Host: an elite Akhelian Guard phalanx. [1c]

Notable
